's question time british prime minister cameron answered questions about lowering energy bills and allegations of child sex abuse by a former bbc presenter. the prime minister told that under his government voting by prisoners would not be allowed to vote. >> questions to the prime minister. number one mr. speaker, >> thank you mr. speaker. this morning i had meetings with minister and colleagues and others and in addition to my duties in this house. i hall have other such meetings today. >> can i ask my honorable friend whether he would ensure the government powers is used to investigate the predatory activities of the late mr. jimmy sapple? >> i think my honorable friend makes a good point. the allegations are apauling and shocking the entire country. and these allegations leave many institutions especially the bbc with serious questions to answer. how did he get away with this for so long. and the most important thing is the police investigation is allowed to continue. i don't rule out further steps but we do now have independent investigations by the bbc and independent investigations into
the doctor-patient relationship. and instead of getting into high gas and energy prices, let's jump start the development of america's vast domestic energy resources. let's build the keystone pipeline. let's expand the exploration and use of natural gas and coal. these are all good ideas that mitt romney supports. the president obama has ignored or rejected. that is disappointing, especially considering how his policies have failed. he promised to listen. he promised us change. but all we have got is more of the same. more spending, more red tape, more debt and decline. a loss of hope. the united states senate, run by the president's party, has not passed a budget in more than 3.5 years. that is irresponsible. and reckless. now the president is demanding another tax increase on small businesses that would destroy more than 700,000 jobs and drive our economy of the fiscal cliff. here in missouri, we count on coal for 82% of our electricity. calldent obama's were on -- war on coal is threatening higher electricity prices for families and job creators. we cannot go on like this. this electio
important goals. first, we will achieve north american energy independence by the year 2020. second, we will make sure our students and workers have the skills they need to succeed. third, we will promote trade the works for america and crack down on countries like china when they cheat. fourth, we will cut the deficit from day one and balance our budget within 10 years. and finally, we will champion our small businesses, the engine of job creation in this country. look, i know we face big challenges and we do not need more catch phrases or word games. we do not need more of the same petty partisan attacks. we need a leader, a leader with a real plan that will deliver real results. my opponents have spent much of this campaign talking about small things. but the challenges we face are real and they are big. that is why paul ryan and i are focused on how we can make our way back to prosperity and opportunity, how we can rebuilt a strong military, and fashion a strong economy. the choice before you is clear -- we can wait four more years for real change or we can take things in a new dire
of the debates and hasn't focused enough of its energy on the ground with actual voters and personal stories. and finally, my goal from massachusetts writes, since my vote will not matter, have put my energy into getting democratic support for president obama when he is reelected, elizabeth warren for senate. we want to hear from those in non-swing states this morning. the phone lines are open. as we are waiting for you to call, i will point to the front page of usa today. the headline -- four days to seal the deal. after a brief campaign hiatus' courtesy of hurricane sandy, president obama and mitt romney resumed campaigning. the candidate's weekend travel schedules made it clear where the election was likely to be decided. obama was slated to return to ohio today. saturday, sunday and monday. he was set to appear in iowa, virginia, wisconsin, florida, new hampshire and colorado. romney was doubled to campaign in ohio, went -- wisconsin, new hampshire and virginia. statewide polls differ on who was ahead in colorado and i what it should obama with a single digit lead in nevada and wisconsin
in this country, which is so important. and he gives such a cursed of energy in his appeal to the young people of this country is overwhelming. i am so proud to know him and to be his pal and to watch what he has done in his lifetime. he is just getting started. he is getting started in the process of healing america and building a much stronger america. that is what we hope for, that the next generation will do better than this generation. the same way what we got from our parents we want to give to our children. without any further ado, a great zanesville welcome to the next vice-president of the united states -- paul ryan. [rock music playing] >> hey, everybody, how are you doing, zanesville? good to see you. be introduced you to my family. -- let me introduce you to my family. try to give them a microphone. thanks, ladies. this is my wife, our son charlie, sam and our daughter lisa. say hi, everybody. i almost slipped and said, hello, zanesville. i almost said hello, janesville. that is where i am from. i am born and raised in a place called janesville, wisconsin. i went to school with a g
about it before. part one is taking full advantage of our energy resources. on day one i'm going to increase the number of permits to drill on federal lands. [applause] i'm going to act speed approval of the keystone pipeline from canada. [applause] and i'm going to revisit coal regulations that were designed by the administration to strangle the industry. so on day one we'll be closer to energy independence. second i'm going to move to boost trade to latin america especially and i'm going to ask congress for authority that is a power every president has used with the exception of president obama. and i will finally designate china as a currency ma nip pew late tor. it's time to make trade work for america. i'm going to send congress congress the training reform act. who make every worker can get the skills and chance for a good paying job, we deserve it. [applause] fourth i'm going to move to tackle out of control spending. i'm going to send congress the first of several fundamental reforms. the first will be called the down payment on fiscal sanity act to immediately cut, not j
not understand why you would have an energy tax that is hurting our oil, coal, and gas industries on montana that we rely upon. >> the you feel president obama has implemented policies that hurt montana? >> i feel the race to the top is not a good policy for education for one candidate. we have been working with the administration to try to get them more aware of the issues that are out there. it is critically important every time america against -- gets left off. other countries have a carbon tax. we do not, and that is the problem. there has been debate. it has been thrown against the wall. let's hope it sticks. let's talk about what we have done, less than in decades. we are becoming more energy dependent. natural gas is cheaper than cool. that is good for folks. energy is sheet. that is good for the consumers. the obama administration needs more from rural america. it is an educational paul -- process, and let's put it like that. >> we do not have an energy policy. we have an environmental policy. we need to work on alternatives like wind and solar and biomass. we need to talk about cons
that -- [applause] you know with energy like that, i think we're going to win florida, don't you? [applause] now i want to thank governor jeb bush. what a great leader you have in governor bush. i want to thank congressman connie mack for getting into this race and he's going to surprise a lot of people and win next tuesday night. thank you john for entertaining and supporting and for helping so many people come together to make contributions to the red cross. i know senator john thrasher is here somewhere. he's somewhere. and congressman crenshaw is here. thank you -- there they are down in the corner. thank you. they are good men and appreciate their help tonight. [applause] we're excited tonight because we know that we're getting closer to a big change in this country, a real change. [applause] we also have full hearts because we know our fellow americans are struggling through some real tough times with the hurricane that hit the atlantic coast and i want to underscore if you have the ability to help out, please provide some resources there and give calls to your loved ones and keep them in yo
and energy as my wife, she gets more satisfaction added a parent and i do because of the nature of her activities. in saying all of this, i leave open all sorts of things we can debate. i leave open all sorts of ways in which we can talk about government might help or might not help. ultimately, what i reject to in a great many of the programs, the problem is that they did too much of the life out of life. in these remarks i have not attended to persuade any of you that i am right. i do hope as i talked it will give you a context for explaining what i mean. >> thank you very much. >> do i get this extra time? >> let me just say what an honor it is to share a stage with charles murray and with clarence. charles is a giant of social policy and one of the most influential people in that field. while i profoundly disagree with much of what he has written and believes to be true, i have been reading him for years. i've always heard a voice of passion. it is always about trying to figure out ways to help and not hurt the people as they try to achieve their goals and dreams. i can only hope t
are going to ballots at. we need stability in taxes and regulations, and number 4 we need an energy policy like we have done in north dakota. if we support energy, we can reignite america's engine, at the energy independence, national security, job security, and that is what we need to do. >> is interesting what congressman berg says. if you look at the time he served in the legislature, it is roughly equivalent, 4000 percen $. quit talking about harry reid or what ever is. i was not in the senate. i think it is atrocious we do not have a budget. that is the reason we do not have a budget is because both political parties refused to sit down and refuse to solve the problems. there is excellent documents out there, but i believe we have need a balanced budget amendment because the and the way congress will balance the budget is that they have to. that is the path forward for our people and for our country. we need to be strategic. congressman berg voted for sequestration, a disaster, a disaster for defense and jobs trip we need to do everything we can to do this the right way, and that is t
put the audio. this will give your energy. despite changing the will you will save the energy. we can monitor what you are doing. the king collect information. -- they can collect information. all of these things you can share with your friends. a convicted on facebook. -- you can put it on facebook. it is a very good way to increase the number of sites in copenhagen. instead collecting air miles, you collect green miles. this was the initial prototype. now we have these in cars. we are getting very close to its. publicly it will be here next year. read it carefully, it will be here next year. read it carefully, it will be here next year. -- hopefully, it will be here next year. >> come up on the stage. is the vice president and director of the metropolitan policy program at the brookings institution. he will be joined by a bunch of other panelists for how far can innovations take our cities. >> thanks. while they get ready, i wanted to thank the sponsors here and think what you have done. you have taken a very broad view of technology and innovation. he said right at the beginning. i
order will help us achieve five important goals. first, to achieve north american energy independence by 2020. second, to make sure students and workers have the skills they need to succeed. third, we will promote trade that works for america and cut down on countries like china when they cheat. fourth, we will cut the deficit from day one and balance our budget within 10 years. finally, we will champion our small businesses, of the engine of job creation in this country. we do not need more petty partisan attacks. we need a leader with a real plan that will deliver real results. my opponent has spent much of this campaign talking about small things, but the challenge we face are real and big. that is why paul ryan and i are focused on how we can make our way back to prosperity and opportunity, how we can rebuild a strong military and fashion a strong economy. the choice before you is clear. we can wait four more years for real change or we can take things in in a new direction in just a few short days. on tuesday, the choice is yours. our destiny is in your hands. i hope to have your
of where we get our energy and a lecture city. have data centers. i passed a bill to give a better tax treatment to data centers to come in here and grow them through what virginia and here in loudoun county. we recently had new companies coming in and do this, but they depend on low-cost, affordable energy. and this administration is driving the cost of energy up and driving people out of work. those people who lost those 1200 jobs at good, high-paying jobs. they had health care. they were able to pay for retirement, help their kids go to school. now they have lost their jobs and this administration is absolutely opposed to this industry in a way -- you have not seen barack obama go down to that area. mr. romney has been down there, paul ryan. they have gotten a huge, strong response. in 2010, rick boucher who have been there for years, was beaten by the republican candidate, morgan griffith, who was the majority leader of the house of delegates. very strong support in southwest virginia because they understand governor romney has a plan for energy. host: we will have to leave the ans
and a robust energy policy. we need to eliminate corruption in government while at the same time protect social security and medicare. we need to cut back on our $16 trillion debt in sensible ways. but the most important factor in sending someone to congress that represents us is trust. this election really comes down to an evaluation of trust, who you trust. during the next few days you have an opportunity to examine our values and our principles and vision for bringing america forward to a land of endless opportunity. but at the end of your careful examination, you need to examine the character of the candidate of your choice. character counts. my name is gran den doherty i ask for your vote. >> i appreciate it and i want to thank the audience here that's been so well-behaved. give yourself a round of aplause. >> just a few programming notes the second crongal debate will be tell viced tomorrow at 7:30. and the next debate will be the next day at 7:30. i want to thank you and the american democracy project here at rick. our partners in these programs, these are so beneficial to the program. s
and jobs. we have a large energy sector. education is a big issue. among the latino population and especially democrats, immigration reform. host: the demographics of the voters in colorado? guest: 52% women, 40% men. we have increased the number of people were voting by mail. 800,000 people have already cast ballots in this state. it is equally divided. one-third of the electorate is a registered republican, won third democrat, one-third unaffiliated. everyone is plan for the group of unaffiliated voters. you'll hear a lot about appealing to women and latinos. we have heard a lot about the bennett strategy and that is the strategy center michael bennett used in running against the tide in 2010. where by appealing to women and latinos he was able to pull a victory in a year or not favorable to democrats. host: where are the traditionally democratic areas of the state? guest: denver is ground zero for democrats. boulder would be another. they have large registration bases in arapahoe m jefferson county. surprisingly, the fifth biggest county for democratic voter registration is
contributors. he spent billions of dollars on companies which only added to our debt. energy prices are up because energy production on federal lands are down. he rejected the pipeline from canada even as gas line prices soared to new highs. the problem with the obama economy is not what he inherited. it's with the misguided policies that slowed the recovery and caused millions of americas to endure lengthy unemployment and poverty. [applause] that's why 15 million more of our citizens are on food stamps than when he took office. that's why three million more women are living in poverty. that's why the economy is stagnant. today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter our economy grew just two%. after the stimulus it would be growing at 4.3%, over twice as fast. slow economic growth which means slow job growth and declining take home pay. that's what four years of obama has produced. america is ready for change, for jobs and more take home pay and we're going to bring it to them. [applause] now you've know we've had four presidential debates and there is no
. we've been working to expand our energy base as well. but historically as the been a finances center. we took a strong hit in 2008 when bank of america got hit. but it's still a finances town. host: an in colorado is our next caller on our line for independence. go ahead. caller: thank you. i used to work for one of the financial firms and interested because north carolina is a large financial center and romney is the businessman to get the economy going but he said that he's going to reverse frank d.o.d. and i think he was -- dodd-frank and he said that he was going to maintain and that was tendering to the independents. the best i can tell he and ryan's policy simulate britain's which is in a full blown recession. so non-can tell what romney is saying or speaking. i think he says whatever to close the deal on wall street and i think he is saying anything to close the deal to the presidency. host: go ahead. guest: i think mitt romney has been pretty straightforward on where he is going to be focusing his presidency in terms of the five-point plan to get america going again and rebui
will move us forward? who will make the investment in the new energy economy? who will make the investments into the research and development? we have a lot of universities in ohio. we can be a huge part of restructuring the new economy. we have to make sure we do not have a bunch of ideologues in the political realm. we have to have people who recognize that investments in basic research can lead to economic development in ohio. i'm optimistic. politically, we have a great ground game in ohio. i have 14 or 15 obama offices in my congressional district. there are people knocking on doors right now, making phones. we have a huge weekend ahead of us for getting out the vote. a mobilized and energized base. we have had bill clinton here, joe biden, the president, etc. politically, we are going to get the job done in the next few days. host: we are talking with democratic congressman tim ryan of ohio, member of the budget committee. if you want to ask him about the race in ohio or budget committee questions, give us a call. democratic line -- 202-585-3880 the republican line -- 202-585- 3881 oh
makenna showed that energy -- romney can show that energy and keep this going, that i think it could be bigger than some people think. >> our polling shows maybe 2% or 3%. when we look epo those people, the president's -- we look at those people, the president's job approval is only 20% or so. a look at the economy and worry that it will not get better. mitt romney is saying we do not want four more years like we have just had. president obama is saying we do not want eight years like we had under george bush, and everybody agrees with both of them. but where do you go from here? >> the analysis of what governor romney and his campaign has to do is absolutely right. his campaign has to work on the ground game. likely scenarios -- are not saying probable, but possible is for mitt romney to win the popular vote and barack obama to win the electoral college. we had that once before 12 years ago. vice president gore got about half a million votes and governor bush. but people forget that john carey had 71,000 more votes -- if john carey had gotten 71,000 more votes in ohio, he would have
country will become energy self-sufficient at some point. i am not saying it will happen tomorrow. that will be a huge game changer. what has been described as our achilles' heel for years and years, this notion of this declining and weak u.s. economy, even that will be changing. when you hear a country like japan looking at off the table type of demographics or japan which is now gone from 128 million people has gone down. we're looking at 70 million people in our children's lifetime. japan is foreswear nuclear energy because of last year's catastrophe. the look at the united states. we are going to be a very big player for years to come for a lot are reasons, including our economy. i think it is a good time to look at this. we are not in any kind of declining mode. we'll be more important in the coming years. >> i would like to respond to one thing. i was thinking about what the last to the speakers were talking about. whether we should be optimistic about whether this can be sustained. i think the challenges are greater than richard laid out. i am optimistic we will be able to
natural energy to press natural gas. be able to convert our semis and buses to compressed national gas instead of sending a thousands of dollars over to the opec countries and saudi arabia, who really does not like us. i want to build wisconsin in america. >> give us an example of legislation you could work on immediately that would put life into the people of wisconsin in terms of jobs? >> i will try to build on the work i've already done by having passed bipartisan legislation for the paper industry, where china is subsidizing its paper industry to the tune of billions of dollars, create an unlevel playing field at. have seenu.s. -- we u.s. jobs and the paper industry go overseas. we need to do the same thing in all parts. because the and level playing field is costing. wisconsin costing i would push buy america policies, in particular in homeland defense and national security. we are paying u.s. tax dollars and they ought to pay u.s. jobs. often they're not using u.s. employees for these things. i went on a made in wisconsin poor in the earlier part of my campaign and visited a shoe
energy and a lecture city. it provides affordable energy here in loudoun county where we have data centers. i passed a bill to give a better tax treatment to data centers to come in here and grow them through what virginia and here in loudoun county. we recently had new companies coming in and do this, but they depend on low-cost, affordable energy. and this administration is driving the cost of energy up and driving people out of work. those people who lost those 1200 jobs at good, high-paying jobs. they had health care. they were able to pay for retirement, help their kids go to school. now they have lost their jobs and this administration is absolutely opposed to this industry in a way -- you have not seen barack obama go down to that area. mr. romney has been down there, paul ryan. they have gotten a huge, strong response. in 2010, rick boucher who have been there for years, was beaten by the republican candidate, morgan griffith, who was the majority leader of the house of delegates. very strong support in southwest virginia because they understand governor romney has a plan f
sure students can finish school and go into jobs that are now open. on energy, we will continue to cut oil imports. in half by 2020, producing more american made energy. oil, clean coal, natural gas. those will create 600,000 new jobs. wind, biofuel, solar. we are already requiring automobiles to double their mileage by 2025. that alone will save $1.70 trillion at the pump and 12 million gallons -- barrels of oil over that time. -- 12 million barrels of oil over that time. the will level the playing field for the middle-class. because whenever the middle class is given a chance, they have never ever let their country down. we're going to do it by allowing 14 million americans, many of you in virginia who have never missed a mortgage payment, who are paying 7.5% on their payments to refinance it. no government -- saving them $3,000 a year. where i come from, there's 400,000 of you that would qualify. $3,000 a year is the difference between paying your automobile insurance and keeping your kid and comment -- in community college. instead of another ipod billion dollar tax cut -- $500 bil
president, mitt romney [applause] you've heard a whole new energy since that first debate, haven't you 1234 you know why? because the people of this country for the first time were able to see the real mitt romney instead of what the chicago henchman were portraying him in six months of negative advertisement. you saw a person standing there with the president of the united states who is practical, who is compassionate, who is humble and who is trustworthy and you saw a president with all the air go out of him. he's not the obama that everybody thought he was. now president obama once said in a previous campaign and let me quote here exactly, if you don't have a record to run on, then you make big elections about small things. so is there any wonder why you're hearing from the other side about big bird and binders? that's what we call in america running from your record. and we've had all these misleading attacks and what has our candidate's response to that been? exactly what it should be. attacking me is not agenda. this president has no agenda. so in short, we need to just simply thank p
natural -- natural energy. these ar our buses to compressed natural gases. i went to bill wisconsin in build -- i wanto to wisconsin and america beard >> same question for you. >> for manufacturing, i would try to build on the work i've already done by having passed a bipartisan legislation for the paper industry with china is subsidizing to the tune of billions of dollars. we have seen those close. we need to do the same with the emerging solar panel industry and auto parts. a companion piece of legislation i would work on is pushing america policies, and the particular homeland defense and national security. when we pay u.s. tax dollars, they ought to be supporting u.s. jobs. often we are not using u.s. employees for these things. and what i made in wisconsin for earlier -- i went on a made in wisconsin tour earlier and too often those jobs are going overseas and that is irresponsible. summit johnson was talking about -- tommy thompson was talking about drilling in alaska to create jobs here. it is ridiculous. if an energy products -- creek page in wisconsin. -- that would create
. from the harmful energy policies that are devastating communities, to our electric bills skyrocketing. obamacare that is endangering the access of medicare to our seniors. now, this sequestration deal is threatening another 200,000 virginia jobs. in washington, you deserve a strong, independent voice. if i have the honor of serving as your united states senator, i will work hard to build a society where hard work is rewarded and every american has an opportunity to succeed. >> thank you for those opening statements. we want to get to the questions. you will receive 90 seconds to enter each section -- question. we have a lot of great questions from our viewers. we will be weaving that into these questions. neither candidate or campaign has knowledge or access to any of the questions we will ask tonight. this is your last opportunity state-wide to communicate to the voters. as a result, i want to begin with what i think is the campaign narrative and what has become the criticism for both of you. governor kaine, we will begin with you. you will be president obama's senator kerry you hear
.s. companies also have very significant increases in costs and in particular in health care and energy and pensions. so what do you do when you have these big increases in costs, competition makes it very hard to pass on the costs? you cut other costs. and i think this has put enormous pressure on wages. so i think that's part of what's happening. the other thing that's happened is that is of the scale that can move an economy like this which again you first have to recognize that the movement has occurred and when it occurred. is the spread of information technologies across the economy and which is part of an even larger phenomenon which is the dominance of ideas or intangible assets in the creation of value in the u.s. economy. this is a big development. again, it started -- didn't start in 2000. it came much more to fruition in the last decade where the most important assets of u.s. companies became their intangible assets not their equipment, not their equipment buildings et cetera. and when you looked at what share of the what's called the book value of a company, that is how muc
here and the republicans have something like 22 offices here. we have a tremendous amount of energy going into the ground operation. there is a tremendous amount of surrogates coming in almost every day like governors and celebrities and other people. there is a tremendous intensity of campaigning here just not the principles. host: you mentioned governor romney and his meeting with billy graham. talk to was more about that. does dr. graham, maybe his family members and sun, are they taking an active role in the romney campaign? are they just giving their blessing to say that for evangelicals and people of faith in north carolina that it is ok to go ahead and support a mormon? guest: it is very close to an endorsement. you might as well call it an endorsement. he did not say to vote for him but it was close to it. i don't think you can underestimate the importance of billy graham giving his blessing to a candidate because he is a widely respected figure in north carolina. north carolina is part of the bible belt so i would say that billy graham is probably the most beloved figure in
that will help. host: we must heed this warning and act quickly to solve the climate crisis. dirty energy makes a dirty weather. let us go to james in memphis, tenn. on our line for democrats. good morning. caller: i think the global warming trend is starting to be seen throughout the united states and the world. more floods, morse tsunamis, a much more water coming on land. -- more tsunami is, and much more water coming on land. this is the second time in less than a year that it is going into the virginia area at a flooded out areas that have never over flood. water is growing to be a problem for a lot of places that have never flooded before. host: mike, on our line for republicans. what do you think? caller: i think it is whether. as the articles that you thought so articulate read, they stated on both sides, there is no definitive conclusion that can be made based on available data. it is all conjecture, the left is, whenever we have these things, they are running around with their hair on fire, trying to draw some conclusions because we use fossil fuels and of this that any other that the
to be explored. it is efficiency is the key. we have to become more efficient when it comes to our use of energy and fuel. that will be less reliance on gas and oil, less hydrocarbons into the atmosphere and less money spent. >> i want to go to charlie and we will wrap it up. >> somebody who works with their hands for a living, they work in the woods or in the water. they want to get to work in an inexpensive way. what you are talking about oil or gas or coal, we have to have and all the above strategy. if we start dealing now, they said it would take 10 years before the oil because gasoline in our fuel system. that would have been done and we would have it here today if that was done 10 years ago. we have a responsibility. every day we import oil from the middle east is a day we are paying people we are fighting against. we should be drilling for oil in this country and looking at every alternative we have. not only is it an economic issue, it is a national security issue. as someone who served in the middle east, i understand full well what that means. >> to me this is not an issue about gas p
banking center. >> it is primarily a finance center. we have been working to expand our energy base as well with duke energy as kind of a hub of that. but historically has been finance center. we took strong hit in 2008 when wachovia and bank of america both got hit pretty strong. that said, it's still finance town. >> ann in aurora, colorado, is our next caller. she's on our line for independents. go ahead, ann. >> hi, thank you. i used to work for one of the large financial firms and interested because north carolina is a large financial center and romney touted as businessman to get the economy going. but he said that he's going to reverse frank dodd and i think he was pandering to tea partiers after that. so i think that was maintained to pandering to the independents. as best i can tell, he and ryan's policy assimilates accounts in britain, which is now in a full-blown recession. so i think no one can tell what romney is truly saying or speaking. he changes frequently. i think he says whatever to close the deal on wall street, and i think also he's saying anything to close the
being discussed. how would you vote on energy issues? >> i think energy is of extreme importance. drives our economy. we need to focus on renewable resources with regards to the investment of the federal government and the government that stays out of the way with respect to the private market otherwise. we have our tax dollars going -- the money you sent into the federal government -- going acts on mobile. instead of sending money there, halis to be invested in green energies. we have a tremendous swing belt that runs to this district. there are people who would love to get their work if they have subsidies available. building the giant blades for those wind farms. they got governmental assistance. i would like to see us invest in that fashion. >> yes or no? >> yes. >> yes. >> two minutes. >> does it start again? all right. [laughter] it is not mathematical reality to think we can run the america on -- our supplies are going down. they are going down because of the burdens and regulatory environments shutting down power plants. what we have to do is look at my energy plan. it is an all
the country. not every technology we bet on will pan out. there is a future for clean energy it in america. i am not going to see the future to another country. i want to create jobs here in america. i want to support the new technologies that will reduce carbon who in our atmosphere, that will make us less dependent on foreign oil. that is the future worth fighting for. [applause] real change is finally turning the page on a decade of war. let's do some nation building here at home. we will pursue our enemies with the strongest military the world has ever known. it is time to use some of the savings from ending the wars in iraq and afghanistan to start repaying our debt, to start rebuilding america. that is part of our national security. right now we can put people back to work all across the country, fixing roads and bridges, making sure our schools are state of the art. let's put americans back to work doing the work that needs to be done. let's focus on our veterans, because nobody who fights for this country should have to fight for a job. [applause] that is my commitment to you. that is
we can make -- we can act as our own domestic energy. this administration has made it illegal to get a permit to access natural gas on public grounds. the keystone pipeline is another thing that this administration has put a halt to. my opponent supports the pipeline yet she has -- she is endorsed by one of the biggest firms out there that says you cannot do anything that will put a pipeline in. the key thing here is to get the government -- the overt regulation is crushing our economy. those are the facts. we have to have clean air, clean water. at the same time, when you have the federal government telling the american farmer that your 17-year-old daughter cannot drive a tractor, who will take better care of the farm kid? mom and dad or big government? the key thing is to have both parties coming together sharing ideas. not one party telling us what we cannot do. let's look at everything and do it in a responsible way for our economy, for our environment and also to make sure that people are safe on their jobs. >> we need to get away from our reliance on foreign energy. we are taki
'm not calling to have a job. the second question went straight at the president and said your energy secretary says it is not his job to keep energy prices down, do you think it is his job, and the next thing i know we were arguing about drilling in public lands. i went back and said the question was do you think it is the job of the government, and then they went off on the next public lands thing. then, you have been up so much time in this, that leads to one, two, three less town hall people. i did it a couple of times, as many times i felt i could do it without completely blow in the format. with guns, we went off on something. they started talking about single mothers. >> single mothers and marriage, yes. >> i will say that the format that has evolved is better today than back in the day when it was much more strict. we were told u.s. the question, no follow-up, two minutes, one minute, and i was told to interrupt it they did not. there was a red light and a buzzer. there were restrictions. today, they are given more time to have a conversation, and you learn more that way. come to the de
agencies that are in charge, including the department of defense, department of energy, and those that are going to need to respond very quickly. under craig fewgate's leadership at fema, we've had a chance to talk to the regional officials as well and i just had a phone call with the governors of potentially impacted states as well as some of the major cities in the region. at this stage, everybody is confident that the staging process, the prepositioning of presource, commodities, equipment that are going to be needed to respond to the storm are in place, but as craig has emphasized, this hasn't hit landfall yet, so we don't yet know where it's going to hit, where we're going to see the biggest impacts, and that's exactly why it's so important for us to respond big and respond fast as local information starts coming in. i want to thank hall the members of the team -- all the members of the team for the outstanding work they're doing but the other thing that makes this storm unique, we anticipate it is going to be slow moving. that means that it may take a long time not only to c
, energy, health care. if you are paying for health care for students, it has gone up as a result of obamacare to about $1,500. we have done a lot with providing benefits for our students. we need to continue to do that. there she goes again with regard to talking about student interest rates. i voted against it because i did not want to see small business owners pay $60 billion to pay for low interest rates. we stopped it and we worked and rolled up our sleeves and did it without taxing people and using any additional federal funds. >> i went to a commuter college. i paid $50 a semester for tuition. i am proud to have made it to where i have made it in my profession. let's be clear. i paid $50 a semester because america was investing in public colleges and universities at the time. that is what we need to do. [applause] the question about voting is, what side are you on? i want to go with our kids. >> we actually passed that bill to keep student interest rates low. we did it by working together in a truly bipartisan way to get it done. she says millionaires and billionaires. no,
to their mission. you look at the department at energy that was created when i was a teenager. it was to make the united states energy independent. what has happened with that department over the last 40 years? we look at the expansion of the government and education. when we separated education out of health, education, and welfare. we have spent more money at education at the federal government level, money that could have been used better at the local levels. we have to look at these duplicative programs. we have got to move away from baseline budget to zero-based budget. >> the gao had a study that counted 33 agencies that are doing the same thing. we need to streamline these agencies. seven are focused on businesses and trade. let's streamline them. we have attacked medicare fraud and abuse. we need to continue to do that, in all government agencies. i spent years going into numerous fortune 500 countries -- companies looking for these inefficiencies. i plan using my government to find this week. >> can either of you give me any numbers? the department of energy? >> close to $85 billion.
people we now have smartphones. that uses more energy than our old way of communicating. i should not say old. the legacy way of communicating. a lot of the still have landlines. we have to look the best means and the best way and the timetables in terms of deployment of getting that spectrum to market. spectrum sharing, looking at what the federal -- within the federal coffers, so to speak, in terms of spectrum. all of it is in play. it is and all of the above strategy to get this to market. dynamic spectral small sales, you hear a lot about that. all of these, we are looking at how we can be more efficient and getting spectrum to market both long-term and short-term. >> in the summer, there was a report that said that sharing federal government agencies should be the norm. the administration to get those agencies to identify 1,000 megahertz of spectrum to share. wireless carriers say hold it. first we should be a signing spectrum for exclusive use, not sharing. what would you say to them? >> i would say again that everything needs to be on the table. there should be a rigid -- not be a
give us some much energy, thank you so not. -- thank you so much. thank you. here we are, looking forward, looking forward to the next, how many days? who is counting? is it 11? that is better than yesterday. we are very excited. you can see the momentum is swinging our way. the thing i loved about the debate, i guess what, and on filtered view of my husband, yay! i have been waiting for that for a very long time. hundreds of millions of dollars, half a billion dollars spent on negative ads describing my husband as a person who does not care, a person who is out of touch. i am here to tell you about a person who is in touch and does care. i appreciated the fact that the audience got to see an unfiltered view, at 70 million people in the first debate. there is someone else on that stage that i like. he is the guy you has a vision for the future and understands what is going on. this is an economic recovery that is not a recovery at all. dasa was hurting the most -- guess who is hurting the most -- women. more women have fallen into poverty than men. it is more women have lost their
've neglected, for example, developing our own economy, our own energy sectors, our own education system. and it's very hard for us to project leadership around the world when we're not doing what we need to do here. >> governor romney, i want to hear your response to that, but i would just ask you, would you have stuck with mubarak? >> no, i believe, as the president indicated and said at the time, that i supported his -- his action there. i felt that -- i wish we'd have had a better vision of the future. i wish that, looking back at the beginning of the president's term and even further back than that, that we'd have recognized that there was a growing energy and passion for freedom in that part of the world and that we would have worked more aggressively with our -- our friend and with other friends in the region to have them make the transition towards a more representative form of government such that it didn't explode in the way it did. but once it exploded, i felt the same as the president did, which is these -- these freedom voices in the -- the streets of egypt where the people who were
energy producing district in north america. from a business standpoint, government does not create jobs. government has to get out of the ways of of entrepreneurs can have a chance for profit and it will invest their capital. that turns into jobs and that is prosperity. government needs to have a low, stable, predictable tax rate so the trillions of dollars that are stranded because of the decision will be invested in the decision. we have to lower our regulation burden on businesses. when i was in business, i counted 41 businesses regulated by trade and our number -- there are more now. no one would dare say they are in compliance with all federal regulations because eventually government would come in and shut them down. >> what year do you say the u.s. economy will be fully recovered? >> that's a hard thing to measure. we don't know who the -- who would win the election and if i did that i would be more bold in my prediction. if we win a majority, we will hold a majority in the house, if we would majority in the senate and mitt romney is president, we will move the agenda forward. by
